Panasonic has come up with a new robot designed for head massage. The robot uses the same technology that Panasonic had earlier developed for their hair-washing robots. The latest Panasonic robot will give you dry head spa treatment and Panasonic's engineers are testing how such therapy works. To start the dry head spa with this new robot, the user will have to adjust the head position and adjust the hairline. The robot will then scan your head to develop a 3D map with the use of special sensors. This map helps robot's 24 fingers to apply varying and correct pressure at all the relevant pressure points on your head.
The arms of the robot can expand and contract to reach all the relevant pressure points on your head. Panasonic's next move with this robot is going to be coupling this spa robot with the massage chair to give you a complete in-chair spa treatment. We'd however recommending attaching this robot to your bath-tub for an awesome bathing experience. If you're opening your wallets to buy one; Panasonic asks you to wait until they decide a proper timeline for the release of this machine. Here's a video of the robot's work in progress -
